Submitted by Wallace L. Cooper (United States), Feb 2, 2003 at 21:34

Thoughtful and insightful article but the underlying problem in Palestine is the same problem you find from Afghanistan, Sudan, Malaysia, Iran, Egypt, Iraq, Algeria, Senegal, Syria, Kenya, Libia, Chad, Lebanon , Morocco, Indonesia, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Somolia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Chechnya, Philippines, Kashmir to Oman. It is called Islam. Now matter how peaceful many Muslims are, their core doctrine allows for no other faith to exist peacefully alongside of them. History and current events prove this beyond the shadow of a doubt. WC
